Chargers Beat: Keenan Allen could see time in slot

Chargers beat writer Eric D. Williams feels WR Keenan Allen will benefit from the loss of Eddie Royal and see more time out of the slot.

Fantasy Impact:

Williams feels Allen has short-area quickness and will be able to move around more to create miss-matches. The Chargers also signed Stevie Johnson who can play the slot, but Williams thinks Allen benefit the most. Allen started off his sophomore season slowly after being a second-tier fantasy WR last summer, but did show signs of his successful 2013 rookie year later in the 2014 season.

Chargers sign WR Stevie Johnson

Former 49ers and Bills WR Stevie Johnson is signing with the Chargers. It's a three-year deal.

Fantasy Impact:

From 2010 to 2012, Johnson was one of the most consistent receivers in football, posting at least 76 catches, 1,004 yards and six touchdowns in three straight seasons. In PPR formats, he was the #10, #16 and #18 receiver in that span. The Chargers lost Eddie Royal, so Johnson will presumably replace Royal in the slot, though he had his best years playing outside. (The Bills moved him into the slot in 2013 and his production dropped.) He doesn't have Malcom Floyd's speed, so it will be interesting to see how OC Frank Reich decides to use the 28-year-old Johnson in the offense.
